Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) Market Size by Type, Application, Key Players

Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) Market

The size of the global polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) market was evaluated at USD 5.2 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 8.6 billion by 2030.

Methyl methacrylate is polymerized to create polymethyl methacrylate, also known as PMMA, which is a transparent synthetic thermoplastic. One major factor anticipated to continue to boost expansion of the worldwide polymethyl methacrylate market is the rising demand for lightweight, environmentally friendly plastic material from various end-use industries. Materials made of polymethyl methacrylate are used for partition walls, cosmetics packaging, etc. These bio-based PMMA plastics can also be employed in medical procedures like implant placement, orthopaedic surgery, and the creation of prosthetic teeth. A important element promoting the growth of the PMMA market is technological development and research into bio-based polymethyl methacrylate or sustainable plastic materials in developing nations. Due to its superior qualities over glass, such as greater durability, more inexpensive manufacture, scratch resistance, UV light protection, and ease of manufacturing, polymethyl methacrylate is a clear plastic that is frequently used as a substitute for glass.

It is also projected that growing demand for polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) bone cement and fillers in the healthcare sector would create new revenue-generating opportunities for PMMA suppliers. Over the next 10 years, it is projected that the development of bio-composite and eco-friendly polymethyl methacrylate would offer highly lucrative chances in the market.

According to end-use industry, the automotive sector of PMMA is anticipated to experience the quickest growth during the forecast period. PMMA is frequently utilised in the automobile sector since it is both lightweight and weatherproof. It is utilised in taillights, side windows, windshields, windscreens, headlamps, rear lights, metre panels, sun visors, tail lamp covers, speedometer covers, and signal lamps in addition to other external lighting fixtures. PMMA is utilised in electric vehicles (EVs) because it performs better than conventional polymers and other materials in terms of performance. The government’s initiatives supporting EVs and the shifting regulatory landscape help the PMMA sector expand.

Growing need for face shields, LED flat screens, the market’s transition to it as a substitute for glass and polycarbonate, and rising demand for the automotive and transportation sectors due to its 100% recyclable nature are the reasons that are propelling the polymethyl methacrylate market. The market is being constrained by issues like high production costs, a scarcity of raw materials, and declining demand in the auto sector.
